Summary: Everything you’ve heard about The Raid is true. This is the best action film in years, one that doesn’t muck around in terms of getting things cracking and barely lets up for its running time. The Raid is rammed full of action sequences, with an unfathomable number of dudes succumbing to guns, knives, hands, fists and other helpful accessories in fashions that will defy audiences to stifle their applause.
Excerpt: 'This film contains scenes of violence' is an understatement when it comes to "The Raid". It's all violence, with a handful of scenes to remind you that there is a point to this mortal combat, even if that point is going to be forgotten as soon as the credits role. Surprisingly, the acting in these scenes is seriously impressive and actually heightens the reality and terror of the situation.
